For the National Portrait Gallery’s most recent portrait competition, held triennially, a jury chose the forty-nine works featured in this book from more than 3,300 entries in a variety of media. The finalists used portraiture or self-portraiture to explore issues of identity and test the boundaries of figurative art. Grand-prize winner Dave Woody received a $25,000 award for his photograph Laura; he will also be commissioned to create a portrait of a notable living American for NPG's collection.
